Capital Markets Law
Many investments do not yield what the investors were promised. Now, if you wish to know whether you are entitled to any compensation for the losses suffered, you should seek before the end of the limitation period the advice a competent lawyer in capital markets law. In case of incorrect advice, immorality or investment fraud, investors can often save their money through the legal system. At GRP Rainer you will find a trusted lawyer for that purpose.

In other words, we shall precisely indicate what your chances are and how to better leverage our lawyers to exercise your investor rights.
Your investment advisor is the first point of attack. This is so because the investment advisers' quality often leaves much to be desired. Indeed, investment advisers must provide investment specific and investor-fair advice at all times. Advice is deemed to be investment specific if the investment adviser provides the customer with all decision-relevant information about the investment. Similarly, advice is deemed to be investor-fair if the investment adviser considers the needs, investment objectives, and the knowledge of its customers. Our attorneys will determine whether your investment adviser has violated his consultancy obligations. If so, we shall proceed to claim appropriate compensation.
Concealed kickback payments constitute a special case of consultancy liability. These are fees that banks, investment advisers, and money managers earn their customers behind their backs - an unfortunately common practice in the sale of closed media funds, property funds, or wind power funds. In any case, a clear case of consultancy liability. Our lawyers will uncover any concealed kickbacks and demand on such basis the investment restitution.
For many investments, the issues begin already with its prospectus. Risks are concealed, opportunities misrepresented, and business ties veiled. In short: Investors are misled. As investment lawyers, we do all the legwork for you, identifying brochure errors as the basis for your compensation claim. In fact, you need not read the prospectus at all. This is the beauty of prospectus liability. The prospectus error itself suffices to make the initiators, managers and backers of the investment liable for your losses.
